Italian fashion brand unveils the perfect Valentine’s fragrance gift-with-purchase item: a heart-themed weekender bag.
With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, Italian fashion brand Moschino has unveiled the perfect fragrance gift-with-purchase. It’s a heart-themed weekender bag designed by Jeremy Scott in the brand’s fashion atelier in Milan. The generously-sized bag boasts whimsical heart motifs in pink, white, red and yellow. You’ll notice there are reinforced black nylon handles and a shoulder strap with gold Moschino zipper pulls. There is even a discreet gold Moschino name plate. It’s the perfect accessory for any fashion enthusiast.
Here’s the best part: it’s free with the purchase of any large Moschino fragrance at Hudson’s Bay stores on thebay.com (while supplies last). It’s one of our favourite fragrance gift-with-purchase items of the past year. It’s roomy enough to hold your clothes and toiletries for a weekend away.
The Moschino brand was founded in 1983 by the late Franco Moschino (1950 – 1994) who caused a sensation with his innovative, colourful and sometimes eccentric fashion designs. He used his catwalk to make political and social statements about the world with a cheeky sense of humour. He loved incorporating teddy bear motifs into his collections. After his untimely death, Franco was replaced by Rosella Jardini, a former assistant who took over the design duties for the house. She would go on to design the outfits for the opening ceremony of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin. Moschino would also design outfits for Kylie Minogue’s 2005 Showgirls world concert tour and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Ball.
Fashion designer Jeremy Scott joined Moschino in 2013 and is credited with adding a contemporary and creative energy to the brand creating collections around game shows, Barbie dolls and jet-set socialites. His shows are some of the most anticipated during Milan Fashion Week. His Toy 2 fragrance for Moschino is a global bestseller.
Fragrance: This refreshing floral-woody-musky scent for her was created by perfumers Fabrice Pellegrin and Alberto Morilla who make an impressive first impression with a burst of juicy mandarin orange and crisp apple notes. They then blend in magnolia, peony, jasmine with a little white currant for interest. Sandalwood, amberwood and musk create a soft base. It’s as light and fresh as a spring day!
